We want to hear your stories of how pregnancy, parenthood, and life in general have changed your body and your body image, for better or for worse. We want to know about the good, the bad, and the stretchmarks.
Personal stories may or may not pertain to body image in relation to any of these themes:
- Natural childbirth
- Cesarean birth
- Weight gain or loss
- Surgery of any type
- Eating disorders
- Basically anything goes!
Tell us what you struggle with, and how you cope. Share your thoughts on body image issues in general. And be prepared for extra visitors! Carnivals are always such a great way to find and read new blogs! We’ll be sharing our stories with you, too!
Here are the details for those of you interested in participating.
- Write a post based on any of the above body image themes (or your own).
- Email it to email@example.com and MamanADroit@gmail.com by April 9th so we can take a look, make sure it is appropriate and make editing suggestions as needed.
- Post it on your blog by April 12th and send us your link.
- Include a link back to this post at Breastfeeding Moms Unite! and this post at Maman A Droit telling readers that you are taking part in the Body Image Carnival.
- If you don’t have a blog but have a story to share, email it to us and we will feature it as a guest post on one of our blogs.
Every day or so during the week of April 12-18, Maman A Droit and I will publish theme posts featuring (summarizing and/or commenting on) your posts and linking back to them so our visitors can come and visit your blog. (This is why we want you to email your posts to us. We’d like to try to group them based on theme for our feature articles!)
What else is planned besides your wonderful posts?
- Product Reviews
- Research on some of the themes pertaining to body image
- A fun Wordless Wednesday (Maman A Droit to post details closer to the date)
We look forward to your submissions!
